What do you love most about your job?

I love participating in a process of change. Life will always have obstacles and frustrating aspects but I love the process of therapy because it allows everything, the positive and negative, to be fuel for growth. I get to watch people gain insight and experiment with their lives and find exciting new possibilities. I also learn from the process every time! I feel extremely fortunate to do what I do.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I started my own practice because I wanted to create something very specific. I wanted a space where people feel comfortable and it can be a respite from everyday life. I work from a humanistic relational gestalt perspective, which basically means I don't think therapy is a manualized process that you may find in an agency or insurance based setting, so I like having the freedom to help people in a unique and effective way.

Why should our clients choose you?

- If you feel stuck in your career and want to move forward
- If you feel like you repeat relationship patterns over and over and want to break free of that cycle
- If you define yourself as a creative but struggle with self motivation, "putting yourself out there", and having inconsistent income
- If you struggle with disordered eating, body image concerns or constant dieting and are sick of feeling constantly consumed by food and weight
- If you are grieving a major loss
- If you have depression and anxiety and want relief

This will vary according to the level of experience and training that the therapist holds.

This will depend on where you live, what level of training your therapist has and what they specialise in (whether they are a counsellor, psychotherapist or psychologist) and also how many years of working experience they have.

Your professional therapist will be able to advise you on the full range of therapies available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted therapist today.

You need to devote some time to finding the right therapist as the connection you have with your therapist is essential. You need someone who you can trust, someone you feel comfortable talking to about difficult subjects and intimate secrets, someone who will be a partner in your recovery. Therapy will not be effective unless you have this bond, so take some time in the beginning to find the right person.

It is worth talking to a few potential therapists and asking questions. Therapists also have special areas of focus, such as depression or eating disorders. For some issues, such as trauma or PTSD, seeing a specialist is absolutely essential.

Everyone’s treatment is different. How long your therapy lasts depends on many factors.

You may be offered a single session of counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months or a longer course that lasts for several months or years.

It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your trusted Bark therapist.

Professional counsellor training takes three to five years and can be a diploma or degree level. Qualification requires a minimum number of client hours acquired through a work placement.

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark and Bark can show you reviews from past customers who have used their therapy.

Therapy has repeatedly and consistently helped patients with a whole host of issues. It can help with mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or an eating disorder. Or it can help with an upsetting physical health condition such as infertility, a difficult life event such as a bereavement or a relationship breakdown. It can also be used to tackle difficult emotions such as low self-esteem, anger or sexual identity issues. Therapists also offer couples therapy. Therapists can also help with anxiety issues deriving from the coronavirus.

Absolutely! Many therapists offer sessions over the phone or through an online video chat platform, so you can have a session from the comfort of your own home - all you need is a strong internet connection and you're good to go.
